    River Cafe: Cool Breezes, Great Food

    by platypusak Written Oct 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With several seating areas, we chose one outside under the trees and right next to the stream. It was a gorgeous day with a slight breeze and the setting was just about perfect. We came for a late gbreakfast/lunch so each of the four of us ordered something different and shared bites. everything was delicious. The wait staff allowed us plenty of time to talk and were attentive without being pushy. We spent at least two hours chatting and enjoying the meal. Perfect, unrushed, wonderful!

    The decor is fantastic and I just loved the blue wall.

    Favorite Dish: I had the Crepes stuffed with apples and cinnamon served with cream cheese and amaretto sauce, melt in your mouth delicious. My husband had an excellent omlet which was delicious. Did I mention the endless mimosas?

    La Bodeguita del Medio: Viva Cuba

    by platypusak Updated May 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With one of the best locations on the Malecon, this was our favorite spot in PV. The latin music was complimented by out-of -this world Cuban themed food. Four of us spent the afternoon nibbling Cuban snacks and drinking mojitos made with real Cuban Rum. The sea view from the second floor adds to the flavor.
    The tiny attached shop has cuban cigars and Havana Club Rum. Just remember to use it all in Mexico!

    Favorite Dish: Don't miss the Shrimp and the fried pork...both are to die for.

    River Cafe: Still My Numero Uno...!

    One of the most beautiful settings in Vallarta. Tiny white lights on trees overhanging the Río Cuale, open air seating with ample room and friendly, fast service by handsome meseros. Menu changes often featuring the finest the chef has to offer. Fish and meat entrees 150-180p, calamari. Very creative, and do not miss the desserts 60p as chocolate cake and crème brulee! Paintings are by local artist Marta Gilbert, a regular here at the bar. Buy a poster and have her sign it for you. Jazz by Beverly and Willow often, depending upon the season. Tropical elegance. A top treat!
